I have an Olympus 5050z, and since I generally only take scenery and panoramic's with it, I wanted to get the Telephoto and Wide Angle lens kits for it.

I live in Canada so its impossible to find lens's offline, So I checked Ebay and tried a few official stores. But generally speaking I will have to order from the States or Japan.

One guy in Canada was selling the 5050 with Both lens (Looked like the official Olympus ones too) So I asked him to sell me just the 2 lenses, (And when no-one bid on it (he was asking 450 USD, with a reserve price) he emailed me back

But he wanted 400$ for both lens and the adapter ring. Which to me seemed very pricey. So Now i'm back to looking across the border.

I see a lot of 50$-100$ ones that aren't officially olympus, and they look fine, but I was wondering if anyone has any experience with them?

and if so what name brand, and any other information you care to share.
